ABSTRACT
This article focuses on developments pertaining to the television broadcasting of news programs in the Saint Louis, Mississippi area, reported as of June 2004. The author congratulates all three news stations for their extensive weather coverage in late May 2004. Although some people complained that there was too much on weather, the stations correctly realized the thunderstorms and tornadoes were potentially life-threatening situations and acted accordingly. Apparently so little news is going on in the world that Channel 5 chose to devote, on May 12, a significant portion of its nightly news program to a story that could best be described as a waste of time. It was a look at two former Channel 5 sportscaster, Matt Weiner and Trey Wingo, who are now on ESPN.
